21 - All I want for Christmas...is subjective well-being & to be crowned king of the bon bons

This week, Two Shrinks Pod is getting ready for Christmas! Amy takes us through the role of cognitive development in believing Santa and how to guarantee the best chance of winning a Christmas cracker. Hunter talks about subjective well-being - what makes some of us feel better after Christmas and others worse? We finish off with two things we came across. This week it's the practice habits of Peppa Pig's Dr Brown Bear and a new diagnostic criteria. Do you have Bond Adequacy Disorder (BAD)?
